Undiagnosed sexually transmitted infections (STIs) can lead to infertility, chronic pain, and other chronic diseases. Yet, there are limited health clinics available in the San Francisco Bay Area. The Stanford Positive Care Clinic offers a range of accessible, discrete, and professional adult medical care services. The clinic was created to provide adults living in the San Francisco Bay Area with access to HIV specialty care, HIV prevention services, as well as confidential STI testing, treatment, prevention, and education.
A type of STI in which the most common and serious complications occur in women, and include pelvic inflammatory disease, ectopic (tubal) pregnancy, and infertility; can be treated with antibiotic therapy.
A virus that destroys the body's ability to fight off infection. People who have HIV may not look or feel sick for a long period of time after infection, but if not diagnosed early and treated, will eventually become very susceptible to many life-threatening diseases, including AIDs, and to certain forms of cancer.
Clinical trials are research studies that evaluate a new medical approach, device, drug, or other treatment. As a Stanford Health Care patient, you may have access to the latest, advanced clinical trials.
